Currently the introspection receiver uses the most recently received value in all cases. For fields like hardware-version and software-version in host-info, this can lead to useful information being deleted when one process sends an introspection event containing the information before a different process send an introspection event lacking the information.

Update host information in src/introspection/remote-introspection.lisp

fixes #2371

Without this change, it could happen that a newly received introspection
event that lacked some information such as machine-version or
software-version would cause these missing values to be written into an
existing `host-info' node, effectively removing information from the
introspection database.

  • src/introspection/remote-introspection.lisp
    (ensure-host string remote-introspection-database host-info): update
    slots of `host-info' structure if an entry already exists
